Re: Stradavox

Hi, I used to own a Stradavox archtop back in the early 80's...probably one of the nicest guitars I've ever played. I bought it for $150 back then. I don't know what they are actually worth. But, I have seen one listed online for $600. I doubt it fetches that much...but I can't seem to find any comparables out there...LOL I'd like to get mine back...traded it for a bass amp in the mid 80's....bad move...but had no money back then...(sigh)

I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER AND PLAY THE GUITAR REGULARLY,I KEEP FLATWOUNDS ON IT AND HAVE NEVER NEEDED NEW FRETS.I KEEPT ALL THE ORIGINAL PARTS THAT I MODIFIED.IHAVE ONLY MET ONE OTHER GUITARIST WITH A STRADAVOX AND THAT WAS IN 1971.I KNOW THAT THEY WERE MADE BY AN ACCORDIAN COMPANY WITH THE SAME NAME WHO IS STILL IN BUSINESS.IHAVE ALSO BEEN LOOKING FOR THEM OR OWNERS OF THEM WITH NO LUCK.I LOVE THIS GUITAR AND WOULD NEVER PART WITH IT BUT I BE INTERESTED IN EXCHANGING PHOTOS OF THE GUITARS WITH YOU.

Stradavox For Sale

I've had this guitar since 1965. My Aunt bought it when I was 4. Actually she bought it for a friend of hers and at that time before she could give it to him they broke up. So I inherited it. Christy's in New York couldn't even locate information on this rare guitar. Can anyone locate more info, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks,

Here's what I've found after extensive research.
